    Coronavirus Relief Fund Updates: Spending Strategies Under Multiple Deadline Scenarios

    COVID-19 relief funding allocated through the Coronavirus Relief Fund (CRF) is authorized for spending by states and counties through December 30, 2020. As this deadline approaches, counties must ensure funds are spent appropriately, reporting requirements are met and contingency plans are made. In addition to sharing best practices and lessons learned related to these issues, this webinar will also feature a discussion on how to quickly pivot and reevaluate spending plans in the event of deadline extension, as well as strategies for navigating subrecipient relationships within your county. NACo will be joined by Witt O’Brien’s for this discussion, who is helping many counties across the country track and manage their CRF allocations.
